Mocana Announces Support for STSAFE-TPM and STSAFE-A100 Secure Elements from STMicroelectronics

Makes It Easier for Manufacturers to Secure IoT Devices and Meet the Highest Levels of Authentication Assurance

 SAN FRANCISCO – February 26, 2019 – Mocana Corporation (Mocana), the leading provider of mission-critical security solutions for industrial control systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced a new collaboration with STMicroelectronics (ST) to provide strong security and support for ST’s leading smart chips. The combination of ST’s industry-leading Secure Elements (SEs) and Mocana’s TrustPoint™ solutions ensures the highest level of security for customers providing devices and services in the Industrial and IoT sectors.

“Mocana’s partnership with STMicroelectronics will help our customers to bring new products that meet stringent cybersecurity standards to market faster,” said Dean Weber, CTO at Mocana. “Leveraging STMicroelectronics and Mocana, IoT devices will be able to meet the highest level of authentication assurance, without using external Hardware Security Modules (HSMs).”

Mocana TrustPoint™, the industry’s most comprehensive IoT endpoint cybersecurity solution for Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications, supports Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 and 2.0, enabling all core features of the Trusted Computing Group’s (TCG’s) TPM 2.0 specification such as:

  • automated X.509 certificate management;
  • multiple ownership hierarchies;
  • local and remote mode of operations;
  • advanced, symmetric and asymmetric algorithms (ECC P256, ECC BN256, AES128, AES256, and SHA2);
  • confidentiality and integrity key protections;
  • an application programming interface (API) abstraction layer for Java and C applications;
  • use of TPM secured keys in protecting TLS, DTLS, SSH, and IPsec communications;
  • support for Linux, Windows, and real-time operating systems (RTOSes); and
  • the ability to use the TPM as a device-specific trust anchor.

Users of the Mocana TrustCenter™, a platform for managing the device security lifecycle, will be able to access these and other features of the STSAFE-TPM.

ST’s Trusted Platform Module, STSAFE-TPM, is a standardized and high-performance TPM targeting PC, server platforms, and embedded systems, which provides device platform integrity services like trusted boot and remote attestation.

STSAFE-TPM includes two product lines: ST33TPHF2E for ecosystems with TPM 1.2 legacy allowing smooth transition to TPM 2.0 and ST33TPHF20 with the highest NV storage on the market. The STSAFE-TPM solution is Common Criteria certified EAL4+ level and FIPS 140-2 certified at level 2 (3 for physical security).

While STSAFE-TPM offers a standardized and certified secure solution, STSAFE-A100 is a secure and cost effective solution that acts as a secure element providing authentication and data management services to a local or remote host. It consists of a full turnkey solution with a secure operating system (OS) running on the latest generation of secure microcontrollers Common Criteria certified EAL5+ and can be integrated in IoT devices, smart-home, smart city and industrial applications, consumer electronics devices, consumables and accessories.

“We’ve worked closely with Mocana to ensure that their TrustPoint™ interoperates with STSAFE-TPM so developers can apply the highest level of security into the full range of industrial and IoT applications,” said Laurent Degauque, Marketing Director, Secure Microcontroller Division, STMicroelectronics. “For customers, makers, and developers looking for ways to install and use certified, tamper-protected keys and crypto for SSL/TLS, IPsec, trust chaining, securing containerized applications, storage, update and boot, Mocana TrustPoint dramatically simplifies software integration for STSAFE-TPM and STSAFE-A100.”
